Different types of piano benches, chairs and stools

To assist with your decision, here is some information regarding different models of piano benches that are currently available on the market.  There are three different types obtainable; larger piano stool in a bench style, single piano stool and a bench style stool more suitable for electronic keyboards.

Piano bench

This style usually features a padded seat and is adjustable to accommodate players of different heights.  It is designed so that two players may sit side by side to play together at the piano.  This is a wonderful feature for families and friends.

An example of this type of piano bench can be found at the top 5 benches.

Piano stool (single size)

This style is suitable for a single player and therefore does not have the flexibility of the bench type stool.  It may have a round or rectangular shaped seat and  is usually padded and comfortable.

An example of this type of piano stool can be found among our test winners.

Keyboard bench

Similar in design to the larger piano stool, but specifically designed for the flexibility of using an electronic keyboard.  This type of stool can accommodate more than one player and, indeed, could be used for a piano as well as a keyboard.  These benches are adjustable and foldable to save space.

Keyboard benches are, in general, rather more plain and utilitarian, with more modern lines and a minimalistic style.
